WHAT TO WEAR: Music Festivals (UK edition)

Ah, to be a celebrity and have the ability to gallivant around the globe as you please to take part in all of the amazing music festivals happening this spring and summer. And in the perfect outfit too.

Music Festival fashion is a huge trend right now after SXSW and Coachella.  It may seem effortless, but a lot of thought goes into the planning process.  You have to consider weather conditions (and potential weather conditions, i.e. rain), sun exposure, mobs of people, being outdoors on grass/dirt, standing and dancing for long period of times. (See my friend Allie's great list of tips on her blog Wardrobe Oxygen.)  You want to be comfortable, but you also want to look good (who knows who you'll run into? Especially when there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of musicians flocking to these things.) 

Vintage styles are a popular look at these outdoor festivals, since big music festivals kind of originated in the 60s and 70s styles are very laidback and on trend for spring.  Today, we shop the Miskabelle closet, planning our imaginary trip to the UK for two big gatherings of music lovers.   What would we wear?

Isle of Wight   (June 2011)
Called "The British Woodstock."  Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, and Kasabian headlining. Also featuring: Band of Horses, Two Door Cinema Club, The Like, Imelda May, and more.

Glastonbury  (June 2011)
A seriously huge festival, with almost every type of music represented.  Headliners include U2, Morrisey, Beyonce, Cee Lo Green, Coldplay and Mumford & Sons (talk about eclectic!) You can also see:  BB King, Bright Eyes, The Wombats, Cage the Elephant, Warpaint, Crystal Castles, Jenny & Johnny, Fatboy Slim, Mike Posner, Janelle Monae, Friendly Fires, Big Boi, Ke$ha, The Eels, OK Go, The Joy Formidable, Robyn, Suzanne Vega, Cold War Kids, The Low Anthem...the list goes on. And on.
